What is the GEM Centre?
The Global Education Monitoring (GEM) Centre drives improvements in learning by supporting the monitoring of education worldwide. The GEM Centre is a partnership between ACER and the Australian Government’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT).
We make a significant contribution to practices, processes and methods to enable education stakeholders to monitor progress towards SDG4.
Quality assessment systems
We support education stakeholders to design and implement quality assessment, monitoring and research.
Reviews and analyses
We analyse and synthesise existing research to help education stakeholders understand, and make recommendations for, effective policies, practices and investments.
The Assessment GEMS series highlights important research topics of the GEM Centre, and provides insights into the GEM Centre's principles and approaches.
